Anime Boston, the largest anime convention in the Northeast, announced another round of guests today. Director Shinichi Watanabe (aka Nabeshin) and actor Yasuhiro Koshi will be attending Anime Boston at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Mass. on May 24 through May 26, 2013.
Shinichi Watanabe (aka Nabeshin) is known to anime fans as a larger-than-life, iconic figure with an outrageous sense of humor.
He directed the comedy anime series Excel Saga, Nerima Daikon Brothers, and Puni Puni Poemy, which feature frenetic pacing and appearances by his animated alter ego, a mysterious, recurring character with an afro and distinctive outfit who is tangential to the story.
Nabeshin has also served as series director for The Wallflower and Tenchi Muyo! GXP, and he can be found in these series as well, in cameo or supporting roles.
Nabeshin has been quoted as saying that he places great importance in making viewers laugh.
Stating that he values laughter as much as tears, his preference is to motivate viewers to have fun and enjoy a show. He reasons that his success stems from provoking the same, strong emotional investment in a humorous way as a traditional, sentimental story does.
Nabeshin has also written lyrics for the opening songs of Excel Saga and Tenchi Muyo! GXP, and has served as storyboarder and episode director for a variety of other anime series.
Yasuhiro Koshi is known as an actor and chief advisor for action movies in Japan and the U.S.
Using his knowledge and experience as a former sergeant in Japan’s Ground Self-Defense Force, he provides advice for battle action scenes, military roles, weapon design, and so on.
He served as the chief military advisor and had guest appearances in many movies, including Battle Royal (2000), Returner (2002), Battle Royal II (2003), Last Samurai (2003), Calamari Wrestler (2004), Casshern (2004), Devilman (2004), Godzilla Final Wars (2004), Ultraman (2004), Lorelei (2005), Saikano: She’s the Final Weapon (2006), and Sukeban Deka which he has a major role in.
Most recently he has worked as a military advisor for parts 1 and 3 of 20th Century Boys, and he was a consultant on the, recently released to Blu-ray, Space Battleship Yamato live action movie.
Koshi is a well-known writer for the popular Japanese periodical called “Arms Magazine.” He has also published articles on the history of weapons and uniforms of the Japan Self-Defense Force.
He is also a talent manager who works closely with the Japanese anime and J-pop industry. He heads up the Big Fighter Project (B.F.P.) which has been producing talented artists since 1996.
Previously announced guests were Chris Ayres, Greg Ayres, Lauren Landa, Cherami Leigh, Shinichiro Kashiwada, Tomohiko Ito, David Matranga, ORIGA, Bryce Papenbrook, Raj Ramayya, Stephanie Sheh, Tom Wayland, and Kari Wahlgren.

Tampa Bay Comic Con Moves to the Tampa Convention Center
April 8th, 2013 – Less than 24 hours following astounding and sudden attendance growth and success of the April 6-7, Tampa Bay Comic Con, it was clear to the convention organizers (Action3 Events and Promotions LLC) that the previous venue was simply too small to host the rapidly growing convention. The decision was made to have the fall 2013 and spring 2014, Tampa Bay Comic Con held at the Tampa Convention Center in downtown Tampa.
The April 6-7 convention brought in attendance figures that made it impossible to host the convention in any Tampa venue other than the Tampa Convention Center. There has been much press coverage and social media buzz surrounding the April 6-7 convention, and how the attendance numbers on Sunday, April 7th were impossibly chaotic and frustrating for attendees. Saturday, April 6th brought in roughly 2,500 attendees (a then recording breaking figure for the convention) while Sunday, April 7th brought in an undetermined amount, but estimated at 4,000-5,000 attendees. Sunday’s attendance numbers played an unfortunate role, as the Tampa fire marshal would appear midday and order that ticket sales must be halted due to the venue being at capacity.
To accommodate the convention’s tremendous success and growth, the Tampa Bay Comic Con will encompass over 25,000 sqft. of Tampa Convention Center exhibitor space complete with two large breakout rooms for panels and special events. This more than doubles the size of the previous venue.
Single-day admission will remain at $15.00 for adults and FREE for kids 12 and under and two-day admission will hold at $25.00 for adults and FREE for kids 12 and under.
